Teachers talk Literacy Skills for a Digital World

Teachers talk Literacy Skills for a Digital World | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Today, digital natives are both consuming and creating online or on their mobile phones constantly, and the literacy skills needed for an interconnected world have changed. They include the ability to navigate thousands of sources, locate quality information, evaluate fact from fiction, synthesize, and create and communicate perspectives in the appropriate way to diverse audiences.

To what extent are the literacy skills required for a new world more or less the same as they were before? Will new literate practices need to be generated and if so, what are these new literacies and how can they be learned?

The Tyranny of Being On Task - Edutopia

The Tyranny of Being On Task - Edutopia | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it
There seem to be forces in education that push us to make sure students are on task. Why do we attempt to meet that demand when we know it’s unreasonable? Why do we demand on task behavior when it is not equivalent to student engagement? Isn’t it OK for students to be off task from time to time? In fact, don’t students need time to be off task? To take it to another level, what if off task is really on task?

For Students to Succeed, Social Capital Matter Just as Much as Skills—Here’s Why | EdSurge News

For Students to Succeed, Social Capital Matter Just as Much as Skills—Here’s Why | EdSurge News | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Let’s just debunk a big ol’ myth right now: No one, and I repeat, no one makes it entirely based on their own merit. The concept of “meritocracy” as a path to success is misguided, because so many external factors shape the privileges, opportunities and challenges that people experience in life.

As educators, when we tell students that they can do anything, we sometimes neglect something important, which is this—success doesn’t just boil down to one’s own skillsets or intrinsic abilities. It’s so much bigger and more networked than that. Alongside reading and writing, math, sciences and STEM, there’s an equally important subject deserving of attention and resources: social capital.

How Kids Benefit From Learning To Explain Their Math Thinking | MindShift | KQED News

How Kids Benefit From Learning To Explain Their Math Thinking | MindShift | KQED News | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Math teachers of older students sometimes struggle to get students to explain their thinking with evidence. It's hard to get kids in the habit of talking about how they are thinking about a problem when they've had many years of instruction that focused on getting the "right answer." That's why educators are now trying to get students in the habit of explaining their thinking at a young age. The Teaching Channel captured kindergarten and first grade teachers pushing students to give evidence for their answers in situations where there are several ways to think about a problem.

Dennis Swender's insight:
Just like in athletics where players and not coaches are called to demonstrate how a play is executed, student explanations in math help facilitate Vygotsky's zone of proximal development.  Subsequently, a instructor's brief and  strategically spaced explanations may produce greater attention and comprehension..

Donald Clark Plan B: Has L&D been hijacked by ‘identity’ politics?

Donald Clark Plan B: Has L&D been hijacked by ‘identity’ politics? | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it
"Training that establishes difference also implies exclusion. Fixing favoured identity groups, seeing some as oppressed and others oppressors is a destructive force. And when HR aggressively promotes and ‘us’ and ‘them’ culture it does us all a disservice. When we become the managers and administrators of difference, serving up a never-ending diet of identity and diversity training courses, we swirl around in our own echo-chambers. We become the seekers out of ‘wrong-think’, policing ordinary people, as if they were stained by original sins. It results, not in rational consensus within an organisation, but the false exaggeration of difference.

Ms. Sepp's Counselor Corner: Teamwork: Cup Stack

Ms. Sepp's Counselor Corner: Teamwork: Cup Stack | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it

The Cup Stack is a great activity to facilitate teamwork.  Some groups are able to complete the task very quickly while other groups must keep trying and trying to complete the task successfully.  It's hard not to give up when things get frustrating, and this is a valuable lesson for children to learn in a safe environment.  All you need is cups, rubberbands, and string.  I decided to put my students into groups of 6, so I tied 6 equally spaced strings (about 1-2 feet long) around a single rubber band.  Each group was given this device and 6 cups.

The challenge is for the group to build a pyramid out of the paper cups (3 on the bottom, 2 in the middle, 1 on the top - can be adjusted for more cups).  Group members cannot touch the cups with their hands or any other part of their bodies, even if a cup falls over or on the floor.  Each person holds onto one of the strings that are attached to the rubber band and they use this device to pick up the cups and place them on top of each other (by pulling the rubber band apart and then bringing it back together over the cups)."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

Great activity to build teamwork skills. Excellent series of questions also provided to process/discuss the activity after it's over. Seems to be useful for just about any age. Designed as a non-tech activity. How could you integrate tech into either the activity itself or the follow-up discussion?

Students Learn From People They Love - The New York Times

Students Learn From People They Love - The New York Times | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"That unplanned moment illustrated for me the connection between emotional relationships and learning. We used to have this top-down notion that reason was on a teeter-totter with emotion. If you wanted to be rational and think well, you had to suppress those primitive gremlins, the emotions. Teaching consisted of dispassionately downloading knowledge into students’ brains.

"Then work by cognitive scientists like Antonio Damasio showed us that emotion is not the opposite of reason; it’s essential to reason. Emotions assign value to things. If you don’t know what you want, you can’t make good decisions.

"Furthermore, emotions tell you what to pay attention to, care about and remember. It’s hard to work through difficulty if your emotions aren’t engaged. Information is plentiful, but motivation is scarce.

"That early neuroscience breakthrough reminded us that a key job of a school is to give students new things to love — an exciting field of study, new friends. It reminded us that what teachers really teach is themselves — their contagious passion for their subjects and students. It reminded us that children learn from people they love, and that love in this context means willing the good of another, and offering active care for the whole person.

"Over the last several years our understanding of the relationship between emotion and learning has taken off. My impression is that neuroscientists today spend less time trying to locate exactly where in the brain things happen and more time trying to understand the different neural networks and what activates them."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

It has been my experience and opinion that many students, and particularly historically underserved students, learn FOR their teacher. If they care for their teacher, they give their attention and engagement willingly. If they don't care for their teacher, they tune out and sometimes act out. The most fundamental building block of school is relationships. It's gratifying to see that neuroscience research provides support for this position.

Data Was Supposed to Fix the U.S. Education System. Here’s Why It Hasn’t. - Harvard Business Review

Data Was Supposed to Fix the U.S. Education System. Here’s Why It Hasn’t. - Harvard Business Review | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it
For too long, the American education system failed too many kids, including far too many poor kids and kids of color, without enough public notice or accountability. To combat this, leaders of all political persuasions championed the use of testing to measure progress and drive better results. Measurement has become so common that in school districts from coast to coast you can now find calendars marked “Data Days,” when teachers are expected to spend time not on teaching, but on analyzing data like end-of-year and mid-year exams, interim assessments, science and social studies and teacher-created and computer-adaptive tests, surveys, attendance and behavior notes. It’s been this way for more than 30 years, and it’s time to try a different approach.

The big numbers are necessary, but the more they proliferate, the less value they add. Data-based answers lead to further data-based questions, testing, and analysis; and the psychology of leaders and policymakers means that the hunt for data gets in the way of actual learning. The drive for data responded to a real problem in education, but bad thinking about testing and data use has made the data cure worse than the disease.

Excelente artículo de Donald Clark (@DonaldClark). Escribe a propósito de la tendencia de moda: las plataformas de experiencias de aprendizaje y un término asociado a ellas, el “engagement” o compromiso.

 

Se pregunta qué es “el aprendizaje” y concluye que el “engagement” no es malo pero no implica necesariamente que aprendamos.

 

Las “experiencias de aprendizaje” implican esfuerzo.
